Tour de Feminin - it has been for three decades, the name for the international cycling stage
race for women, which promotes the good name of the Czech Republic, Ústi Region and the region Šluknovsko literally around the world. Just look at the start list from last few years, where we find the national teams from New Zealand, Japan, Australia or Colombia, Mexico or exotic Costa Rica. There had to figure out where the Czech Republic, Bohemian Switzerland and Krasná Lípa are.
It is a very challenging sports event in aspects of organization, technical support, finances. It can be organized only thanks to the generous support of sponsors and partners, who belongs big thank. Thanks also to all my colleagues - mayors from our region - who joined forces with organizers. And finally thanks to the founder of this event and long-time race manager Jiří Vích with the desire to make everything well managed and we will be able to meet during the closing ceremony in the square Křinické náměstí in Krasná Lípa.

Tour de Feminin is under the patronage of me for several years. And I do like it. The idea of Jiří Vích of promoting cycling for women in beautiful Bohemian Switzerland and Lusatian Mountains is exceptional. Women´s cycling is apparently on the rise not only the competitive one but also the recreational one. Tour de Feminin this optimistic curve largely copies, both in terms of athletic performances, as well as in terms of audience attendance. Therefore, I believe that this race faces a very promising future.
